number one. and a few other domestic policy flashpoints as well. the economy is due to take up three of the six segments that are laid out for tonight, with one segment each devoted to health care, the role of government and leadership/governing style. and by a pretty wide margin going in right now, the voters expect president obama is going to outdebate his opponent, but both men have taken great pains to downplay their own chances, downplay the expectations. our dan lothian is up very early at the university of denver. and, dan, i understand this is the fourth time that these two men have really ever encountered one another in person. is that expected to have any effect when they meet each other on stage? >> well, certainly this is not someone who the president spent time with in the senate, has not spent a lot of time talking to him, and when they debate tonight, for 90 minutes, it will be the most time and the longest time that they have spent interacting at all. so it is an unusual, i guess, setting if you will for the president and governor mitt romney. but nonetheless, they're

will not be looking to score a knockout tonight but will instead zero in on the president's handling of the economy. you can say that the romney game plan for tonight can be boiled down into two key phrases. do no harm and live to fight another day. just a few hours before one of the most important nights of his political life, mitt romney walked through the debate site in denver prepped for his first one-on-one face-off with the president. campaign officials tell cnn romney's game plan tonight is to provide a clear choice, talk about his plan to create jobs and contrast that with the president's performance on the economy. and in a sign of caution, the campaign says romney won't be looking for a knockout punch. one of romney's top surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that's the right approach. does mitt romney need to score a knockout punch? >> this is not an athletic competition. this is a debate between two money, one that is president and wants to stay there and one that wants to offer a new direction. >> reporter: all day long the romney campaign has signalled it will go after what it

grow this economy best where everybody has a shot and the middle class is thriving. i will pretend that it will be easy to get there. it took us a bunch -- i will not pretend that it will be easy to get there. it took us a bunch of years to get into this mess and will take a bunch to get out. but our challenges can be solved, our problems can be met. we've still got the best workers in the world, the best entrepreneurs, the best scientists, the best businesses, the best colleges, the best universities. there is not a country on earth that would not trade places with the united states. the path i'm offering may be hard, but it is to a better place. -- it leads to a better place. i put forward a specific, practical plan to grow the middle class and rebuild our economy on a strong foundation. i want you to know what this plan is, so when you talk to folks, you can say "here is what he is going to do." i want to export more products but outsource fewer jobs. [applause] you remember when the auto industry was about to go under, my opponent said, "let detroit go bankrupt." [boos] don't b
on domestic issues including the economy and jobs. the second debate on the campus of hofstra university. politico has this piece about jim leher. for the first time in the 2012 campaign, the president and mitt romney will face each other in what many consider the most important even between now and november 6. for the 12th time in the history of debates, jim leher has been asked to serve as moderator making him the most experienced a moderator and the modern history, he is uniquely suited according to his contemporary. at a time when the electorate is as divided as ever and wind -- media scrutiny is -- next is hayley. welcome to the program. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i am one of the people who spend every summer for the last few summers going around the nation asking questions. my main question is, what do people think politically and what they are paying attention to. you say are a third party is relevant, yes, they are. they will never get any kind of support as long as the american people are more interested in things like "dancing with the stars." that is a
heart the middle-class and how to build an economy that works for the middle-class in this country. that is fundamentally what looking for. >> chief political correspondent carl cameron is live in boston. paul ryan is playing the old expectation games on lower xfgss for governor romney but chris christie is calling the debate a game changer. i wonder who is right. >> reporter: you got surrogates talking a lot today. they will continue until wednesday when the priangs can go face to face. today governor romney is doing his debate. president obama has arrived in las vegas and getting ready for the showdown. romney will be in denver in advantages of this. paul ryan was talking about the romney ryan ticket new framework for the race. they said referendum on president obama's record. but it's decide how to best deal with the competent. here is paul ryan trying to set the stage. >> we can have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we can stick with the failed policies of last four years for the next four years or a brighter futur
into six 15-minute segments for a 90-minute debate. it will include three on the economy, one on health care, one on governing and one on the state of government. the role of government, i should say. now, both candidates will be standing at podiums. no strict time limits. each candidate will have two minutes to answer that question and then the rest of the segment will be an open discussion about the topic at hand. so that is how the debate is going to do. aides with the obama campaign say his goal is to deliver his message in a crisp and clear manner. to not seem too long winded as sometimes he has in the past. so that's really his goal and also to make the case about why he thinks he can do a better job in these next four year of turning the economy around and to really give people specifics. as i said, the first lady will be there tonight. it is their 20th anniversary. no time to really celebrate tonight. they say they will do that this weekend. >> quite a way to celebrate. thanks so much. we head tout peter alexander in denver, where mitt romney has been for several days now preppi
when he talks about the economy. that is the private sector track record. the flip side, the weakness is the 47%. some of the attacks he's taken in terms of that business record. i think mitt romney's biggest problem though, chris, is the sense people can't be sure exactly if he believes what he's saying. he needs to project authentic passion for what he believes his plan would do for the american economy to make the 47% lives better as well as the other 53. >> what do you think, e.j.? >> i thought the definitive line on politics, what you need is sincerity, if you can fake that, you can do anything. it's troublesome on this question of authenticate. what is authenticity? romney has taken a number of positions on issues which you will be sure obama will try to sneak in there somehow. he can be ferocious and disciplined. go back to that newt gingrich debate in florida where he dispatched newt gingrich. he can be very good. i think he can have real highs, but also can have lows and say the darnedest things sometimes. >> i want to bring in georgia congressman tom price. good to see you,
the immediate future of our economy, and the level of disappointment in barack obama held by obama supporters who will vote for him, but they are still disappointed in him. so those two things alone, i think, are going to result in a jump-ball election. but to the debate tonight, i do think it's going to be important for mitt romney. the reason i think it's going to be important for mitt romney is i think very few of us have an understanding of the ripple effect of the 47% comment that has been reported and reported and reported out there in the country. this is going to be the first time that many americans, most americans, actually, are going to see mitt romney on a stage with the president of the united states, and they're going to have to figure out, well, does he understand us? he said 47% of us, you know, are basically bust-outs. does he really understand my life? this is going to be their shot at getting a peek at that. for that reason and that reason alone, i think this debate is very important for mitt romney. >> can i pick -- >> and i think the debates -- i personally think debates
private enterprise to grow the economy. the other, his version of president obama's view is that government is still in control of everything. the challenge for governor romney and the debate on wednesday is going to be fully articulate his vision for america's future to the largest audience of his political career. >> we need to give the american people the choice we are offering. that is what we are offering. we owe the country a very clear choice of a different future. we can have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or we can have a stagnant opportunity that fosters dependency. >> romney campaign is looking for a solid performance, no knock outs which the governor has become famous for. he has been avoiding those since he tried to make the with governor perry. >> what is the word on the foreign policy message for romney? >> the governor has an op-ed in the "wall street journal" saying of president obama, by failing to maintain our new, president obama has heightened the instability. he does not understand that an american policy that lacks resolve can p
on the economy because he's got to be proud of what he's accomplished along with an understanding that a lot of people are still hurting. and he has trouble talking about the future. so i think that the numbers are an opportunity for governor romney to say their strongest line from the convention is the one they're emphasizing now, which is why would the next four years be any different than the last four years? i think the president needs to try to trump that by saying more than just you don't want mitt romney. he's got to say, what is his second term about? and i think one of the biggest failures of his debate performance was, he didn't paint a picture of positive -- what a positive agenda would be like for him in a second term. he just tried to talk romney down. and the numbers are a moment where he's going to have to do that and say why are these numbers bad and why will they be better if you re-elect me? >> gene, both camps have not really talked about the next four years. the romney people have been open about it up until recently when i think "the wall street journal" and a lot of con
$50,000. i also want to give them additional tax breaks because they are the drivers of the economy. >> we need to spread the wealth around. in other words, we're going to take joseph money, give it to signature obama and let him spread the wealth around. the whole premise behind the plans are class warfare, but spread the wealth around. i want small businesses that would receive an increase in their taxes. why would you want to increase anybody's taxes right now? these people are going to create jobs unless you take that money for him and spread the wealth around. i am not going to do that. >> number one, i want to cut taxes for 90 5% of americans. it is sure my friend and supporter warren buffett could afford to pay a low tax. in order to give taxes. then exxon mobil which made record profits over the last several quarters, it they can afford to pay a little more so that ordinary families who are hurting out there tried to figure out how they're going to save for their kids' college educations, and they need a break. look. nobody likes taxes. i would for for that no one pays them
. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepid jobs report, there's a chance for this race to change after debate number one. >> if you're the obama campaign, you're looking at all these numbers in our brand-new poll. what's most encouraging to you? >> reporter: in scrubbing through the demographics, the regional numbers, here's one thing they will like at the obama campaign. among white voters nationally, the president gets 41%. governor romney gets 56%. gove
the economy. to what extent are the low rates motivating consumers to spend? >> i frankly don't buy that too much. i think there's a problem because you hurt people's interest income, and people with interest income could spend more, and the problem is people aren't able to access the low rates. you need a very high credit score to get the low rates and everybody that can access the low rates has done it, and if the rates were higher banks wouldn't require as high of a credit score. they're selling what they can through fany and fedy freddie. it's about credit scores and not interest rates. >> susie: aside from what banks are doing. what has to change, to change consumer attitudes about spending? >> the economy has to get better. we've had this in the summer for the past two or three years in a row, and every economy rebounds. if we're going to have a rebound in the holiday season, that could be great and help to put people back to work, and allow them to spend a little bit more freely. we also have a long holiday season. november starts out on a thursday, which means thanksgiving comes earl
the election. >> a president struggling with a slow economy, hoping to boost confidence in his leadership. >> i'm not fighting to create democratic and republican jobs, i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> a challenger fighting in the poll es trying to connect with average americans. after months of attacks on the campaign trial, it's time for these candidates to confront each other face to face. >> we will win this election, we will finish what we started! >> i will do better than this president has done for the american people! >> in colorado tonight, barack obama and mitt romney in their first presidential date. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward. >> what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing. >> two men with different vision on issues voters care about most. both of them. >> we certainly can't go far with a leader who writes off half a nation. >> he said he can't change washington from the inside. he can only change it from outside. well, we're going to give him that ch
the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interesting to say he's not looking for a knockout punch, that's apparently what shannon o'brien who was hoping to win that gubernatorial race in massachusetts back in 2002, that's what he said she was so good at. we're talking to her later. romney has been pretty -- he's been known to get forceful, jim, when he lets his dander up, if you will. let's look at a clip here from a debate, a year ago, this is romney, rick perry, mostly romney. roll it. >> the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds, and you get -- and you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderson -- would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes. >> are you going to let me finish with what i have to say. >> remember that moment? i guess my question, having seen that back and forth, remember, you know, romney kind of getting into rick perry's face, can you be that aggressive to
this way. >> paul is a smart guy. he has committed his life to understanding the problems of our economy, presenting a plan for the american people. so i think that paul is going to do -- is going to do a great job. >> vice president biden will do very, very well. he knows what's been going on. he's in touch with with the american public. and i'm just hopeful that mr. ryan will tell the truth. >> it's a one-shot deal. they've got to get it right on this debate. likely what are they focusing on in their rehearsals? >> well, i mean, joe biden told us he's focusing on paul ryan's economic plan as he introduced to the house last or the year before, because they think that is fertile territory to find a lot of ways to try to paint mitt romney and paul ryan as, you know, against the middle class and taxing the middle class. i think joe biden is going to wrap mitt romney and paul ryan as tightly together as possible and just sort of drop the ryan plan on top it to try to implode the pair. they think that is good ground. as far as paul ryan is concerned, i think he is kind a policy wonk. his pro
on the economy wednesday night. but foreign policy is something that's critically important given the current state of foreign policy where we have a leader now whose foreign policy has made us weak in the eye of the rest of the world whereas governor romney believe in peace through strength. >> all right. let's talk about the expectations here, karen. the game from both sides has kicked into high gear over the weekend. i want to remind everybody. take a listen. >> president obama's a very, he's a very gifted speaker. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> we'd expected all along governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any other candidate in history. >> and i think for us to raise the expectations, he's got to do something spectacular. those things don't happen in debates anymore that there's a spectacular event or gaffe. they're too well rehearsed. >> in this week's debate president obama has a great deal to lose. romney's is the most difficult position. obama's is the most dangerous.
system? >> i think that is an important question, especially for our economy. i want to point out one thing. she posed for sequestration and now says it will not happen. can you imagine that kind of leadership? she goes for the fiscal cliff and now she says it will not happen. let's talk about education. this is the problem i see. we have a department of education in washington. they have 3500 employees that make over $100,000 a year. they are dictating to the school district how to do their jobs. i think that is a shame and it is wrong. i am not talking about closing down the department of education. i have never said that and never will. can we reduce the size of that department of education and get that money down to the school district? i believe the best education for children in nevada comes between parents, teachers, and principles. -- principals. those are who should be making the decisions. >> if i could quickly comment. my opponent mentioned my vote on sequestration. just a few questions ago, he said he voted to end medicare by turning it over to private insurance companies
not defend his record. he offered no new ideas for how to fix the economy. i welcome the chance to share my vision for renewed prosperity and opportunity and i think it compared quite favorably to president obama's policy for big, trickle-down government. >> this past hour, mitt romney's son, josh, met with reporters in the swing state of virginia. it's part of a day-long effort the campaign is calling super saturday, with volunteers going door to door in battleground states. president obama has no public events today. he will head to california tomorrow, where he is expected to tout the new jobs number, 7.8%, and some big fund-raising numbers out today. president obama and the democrats raised $181 million in september, the highest single-month total so far. more on all these stories throughout the next two hours. >>> the campaign focus shifts a bit next week to the vice presidential nominees. paul ryan and joe biden will face off in their only debate next thursday night. paul ryan has just left his four-day debate camp. he is heading back to wisconsin for a fund-raiser tonight. and as for
equipped to guide the economy over the next four years. >> the president hay has created 4 million new manufacturing jobs. he says he's going to reduce the debt. doesn't say how' goegsing to do it. let's be fair here, governor romney has laid out a vision and a direction for this country. let's hold the president to the same standard as well. >> first of all, we have a deficit plan, it's got health care savings. romney doesn't have a deficit plan. he's got a plan to cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires. he's got a 5 trilli$5 trillion. -- another $2 trillion in defense spending. >> just three days into the first presidential debate, meanwhile mitt romney is off to the trail. we have two reports, we begin with nbc's peter alexander, he's with the romney campaign in boston, with a good morning to you, peter. what are you hearing about all the debate preps today. he o'clock najs that this is an important opportunity in her debate. people have a tendency to focus on the small things, like the color of a candidate's tie or the dramatic one liners, which is his need to get across the b
character and not about the economy. what do you think about, that, larry, a beauty pageant? >> i hope not and i don't think that is basically true. look, do people react to candidates as human beings? of course. but they also are fundamentally concerned about the country as whole. the basic issues of the campaign including the economy apply to people's evaluations of a debate. so, no, i really don't agree with that quote. i think it is entirely too superficial in more ways than one. jenna: you might be fun to have it more like a miss america pageant. >> i do not want to see candidates in bathing suits personally the that's just my preference. jenna: we all have our own preferences when it comes to learning more about the candidates, larry as you rightly point out. we'll wait until wednesday night to see what we talk about on thursday morning. always nice to have you, larry. >> thank you, jenna, could be a talent contest. not just bathing suits. we're learning more about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya as there are more calls for the united nations ambassador susan ric
- on a mistake saying that the economy and middle class is buried. >> it is heart beat away from the presidency stories to lock in the file. it is a matter of opinion who buried the middle class over the four years it is a matter of the fact the middle class has been buried. income down $4000 for the average american family. and then you have personal welt. destroyed by a 30 percent drop in housing prices . what about the american dream and aspiration of middle america. they think it is darker for their children than brighter for their children. i would argue that the middle class is buried over the last four years and that was a gaffe, big gaffe by vice-president biden and give the republicans fodder for the debate. >> brian: i think he's campaigning for a year, they forget it is their report card. and mitt romney was buried in debate preparation. he said. i agree with joe biden which is why we need a change in n >> who buried the middle class? is it president obama's policiless or go back to the bush administration and their policiless . i have an opinion that said largely president obama's f
